* SillyReasonForWar: The conflict between the Giants and the Dwarves came about because of a bridge being built between their two lands. Each group was supposed to build one half of the bridge and they ended up building it at different levels. Roberta solves the conflict by toppling the taller half so that it meets the shorter half.

** [[ZigzaggingTrope Zig-zagged]] when Wormword offers to introduce Madalena to the Dark Dark Evil Ways. She walks in on him holding a baby and a knife, and protests that child sacrifice is too evil even for her, then reconsiders and asks for the knife. Wormwood is horrified, and explains that he was [[NotWhatItLooksLike just cutting fruit for the child]] (who he is babysitting for one of the women in camp), and he only expects Madalena to [[DealWithTheDevil sell her soul]].

And she really ''really'' didn't have to sign the contract in blood.

* GayBar: The "Enchanted Forest".
* GenreSavvy:
** With a potential war on the horizon, Gwynne is well aware that no matter what happens among the nobles in the stories, peasants have a tendency to become collateral damage and is very worried about such a fate waiting for her and Chef. (And she attempts to get Chef to poison all the nobles in an attempt to head off such a fate.)
** The main characters know perfectly well they won't get killed in the war, especially with one more episode left to the season.
--->'''Everyone:''' ''It's a good day to die...''\\
'''Queen of Valencia:''' Oh please, this isn't ''[[ShoutOut Game of Thrones]]''.
** King Richard can come up with a BatmanGambit to kill Galavant within moments, foresees that the nubile princess will fall in love with the fallen knight and uses her parents as hostages to prevent that, while lampshading the cliché. [[spoiler: Even if Madalena's meddling eventually saves Galavant from hanging, Richard is also savvy enough to look under the hood just before the execution, saving the chef and finding out about Madalena's interference.]]



* WrongGenreSavvy:
** In the pilot, Galavant was caught quite off guard when he did [[SpeakNowOrForeverHoldYourPeace the standard heroic wedding interruption]] only to find his supposed true love would rather have the fame and fortune Richard offers her.
** Kingsley acts like he is in a more classic medieval setting. He's convinced that Richard plans to kill him in the sleep. Since Galavant persuades Richard to, however, this one turns out well for him. [[spoiler:But underestimating Madalena's ruthlessness and turning his back to her? Not so much.]]

* RightBehindMe: Galavant gets this at the end of the song "He Was There" when he complains about his dad. He cuts off the song to say, "He's right behind me, isn't he?"

* AutomatonHorses: Exaggerated in the second season; the gang's horse stops moving forwards, and it plays out exactly like a motorcycle nobody knows how to service broke down. The horse is just standing there and looks perfectly fine, but the characters are forced to continue on foot after trying to give it a kick fails to work.

The gang is also starving to the point of cannibalism, but nobody even thinks of the fact that the now-useless horse is made of meat.

* LyricalDissonance:
** Most of the songs, but especially "She'll Be Mine," a cheery tune about maiming, beheading, and genocidal war.

* LyricalDissonance:
** Most
LyricalDissonance: The show is largely ''made'' of this trope, including multiple cheery tunes about various characters plotting various murders and assassinations, dramatic tunes with humorous or otherwise ill-fitting lyrics, a cheerful love song highlighting the songs, but especially prevalence of death and disease among peasants in the era, a love-song tune entitled "Maybe You're Not The Worst Thing Ever" and more. Some example:

"She'll Be Mine," a cheery tune about maiming, beheading, and genocidal war.
